.DISCUSSION...
The mid level anticyclone has expanded northward today and will
remain mostly in place through Wed. Even though the anticyclone
will remain in place heights will fall some Tue/Wed so temps will
cool a few degrees. By later Wed SW flow aloft across far W TX/S
NM will tap into higher theta-e air and a few storms could creep
into GDP Mtns/W Eddy Co., but less so Thur. Meanwhile a deepening
upper low will drop into the Great Basin Thur PM with jet energy
carving the mean trof deeper on Fri. Eventually there is an
increasing likelihood that a new low will form INVOF 4 Corners
late Sat PM/Sunday AM. This will serve to back the mid level flow
and increase the chance of storms by Sat PM, if not a little
sooner. This would tend to delay fropa, possibly as late as Mon.
Despite the possibility of a delayed fropa temps will cool with
rain/clouds/lower heights.
